Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
Withdrawal of direct final rule.
On September 28, 2006 (71 FR 56872), EPA published a direct final rule approving Texas State Implementation Plan (SIP) revisions that pertain to regulations to control Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) emissions from facilities in Texas. The direct final action was published without prior proposal because EPA anticipated no adverse comment. EPA stated in the direct final rule that if EPA received adverse comment by October 30, 2006, EPA would publish a timely withdrawal in the Federal Register. EPA subsequently received a timely adverse comment on the direct final rule. Therefore, EPA is withdrawing the direct final approval. EPA will address the comment in a subsequent final action based on the parallel proposal also published on September 28, 2006 (71 FR 56920). As stated in the parallel proposal, EPA will not institute a second comment period on this action.
The direct final rule published on September 28, 2006 (71 FR 56872), is withdrawn as of November 21, 2006.Start Further Info
